“I highly recommend you give Photo Native a turn, in a sea of workshops and online courses there is none that give you both the personal experience networking hands on learning and replays post conference online too! Plus the hosts, attendees and vendors alike were all so very friendly and approachable, I felt welcomed the entire time while at first strangers we departed having made many new friends. They truly upheld their motto "you belong" completely! Thank you for an amazing experience, I look forward to the next and will definitely return!”

“I arrived at PN2019 feeling disparaged and ready to give up, wondering what I was doing there at all. As the conference began I could immediately feel myself being uplifted with a community of like-minded artists and business-women. I loved that the speakers didn't wax on about their own work, awards and accolades, or focus on how to make work just like theirs, but instead on how to tap into my own creativity to improve myself and techniques to broaden my own skills. I left feeling inspired and motivated, excited for upcoming opportunities to create new things and stretch myself as an artist.”

“Photo Native is a conference who's tag line actually lives up to its name - YOU BELONG. Not only did I have an amazing enriching educational experience, but also experienced fulfilling personal growth, depending of friendships and my love of photography and the photography community both near and far. ”
